I became licenced in the early 60s and have held a rider's licence ever since. I rode for about 11 years, stropped riding for about 30 years and bought a bike in 2003. I have just bought an MT 07 and am familiarising myself with it. I am retired and I live in the Belconnen area of Canberra. My other interests include playing a musical instrument, volunteer work, cooking, public speaking and I have a love hate relationship with politics.
